Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the sequel to 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, will hit PlayStation 5 on February 29, 2024. This follows news from Summer Game Fest back in June where Square Enix announced Rebirth will require two discs and launch in “early 2024.”
Alongside news of Rebirth’s release date, Square Enix and PlayStation also released a new and expansive trailer during today’s State of Play. In it, we get our first looks at characters like Cait Sith, Vincent Valentine, and more. We also get to see The Gold Saucer, some fun minigames inspired by the visual style of Final Fantasy VII on PS1, and more of the game’s open area exploration, which features ridable chocobos, vehicles, and segways.
